An Inconvenient Death
Grew up being the piccolo player for Stars and Stripes Forever. Great music, but....
There is a jarring disconnect between the upbeat military music and the reality that cold dead bodies of warm loving children will be sent back to parents today and every day for a long time to come from Iraq. And don't get me started about Iran.
We had damn well better have a good reason for telling a mother that her son has been taken away. Forever.
